I can go out this weekend and take some of the dormant plant, if you think it might help.
They might not turn out very clear, as it's growing in a fairly congested woodland.
Growin, it's growing on a wooded slope. The blooms above were taken on May 5.
As I recall, we had a fairly wet spring (before the terrible heat and drought later in summer).
I don't recall the bloom this year being any different from prior years.
As for any purchase records, VV has already roundly criticized me for my deficient record-keeping.
I simply recall it being some sort of a philadelphus, but I can't find the specific ID from that time.
I appreciate everyone's effort in identifying it for me.
